Hybrid wrote somewhere here that something happened between Streitenfeld and Ridley during Prometheus,and that was why HG-W was brought on for some rescoringI was wondering about this too. Like all of a sudden, after a couple of Ridley Scott collaborations, he disappeared.Streitenfeld's score for "All I See Is You" isn't added to this site. Does it mean, that Marc left the company?Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752
My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing ó but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>Oh wow! Thatís all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???
Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Canít insult me! I am genuinely curious. Whatís this about The Last Samurai???I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :O
Credits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.So he's scoring that and the new terminator? Damn dude's getting as busy as Henry JackmanUnless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?Tom is scoring the live action Sonic movie. He just confirmed that he is scoring it!

was harry ever in talks to do narnia 3 or was he scrapped from the get go?


Mike2014-08-01 20:25:11
He was scrapped, and he said in an interview that it was entirely because of the new director, but that he had no hard feelings. He only did the first two because of his relationship with that Andrew Adamson, so when the director was changed, it was logical that HGW would go. He did say, though, that he would be disappointed if Andrew Adamson returned for Narnia 4 and asked for Arnold instead. ;)

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-10-09 22:54:34
I know Stephen Barton did Miraz Crowned, but did he also do Journey to the How ("In the Boat" on the complete score, I believe it's called)?. It starts out with a sound IDENTICAL to the beginning of All Ghillied Up in COD4.

MacArthur reply Replies: 17 || 2013-10-01 21:38:19
Kinda bummed that Gregson-Williams didn't use the cue from the Battle in the First Narnia.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-01 21:50:58
He did! Bits and pieces of it are all over the action music in Prince Caspian. Plus, why would you want him to reuse the same music?


MacArthur2013-10-01 23:16:30
I don't want him too. but too use that would just have been cool like the Raiders march use in all the Indiana Jones soundtracks.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-01 23:50:28
But the Raiders March is a theme, not an entire seven minute cue. I wouldn't want the "Desert Chase" to pop up in Last Crusade, for instance. As for themes from the first Narnia, HGW carries them over plenty.


MacArthur2013-10-02 00:02:11
Well I do know that I don't want the the Desert chase the whole time either I'm talking the cue from 0:37 too 1:17 that particular Arrangement is awesome and I would have liked to have it in the second film. But you can't always get what you want.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 00:10:02
Ah, I see. Yeah, I love that moment too. Still, overall I think Prince Caspian is a better score than the one that came before it (and after it, for that matter).


Mike2013-10-02 00:24:07
Prince Caspian for me is one of those scores where I like the album better than the full score, since the album highlights the new material. Every single time I see that movie, I feel like it suffers from a bit too much reuse/temp tracking. For example, the way they reused the "White Witch" and "Evacuating London" cues when the Pevensies enter Narnia, or the way they reused...one of the cues which I don't remember the name of...when Lucy first saw Aslan. There were other examples as well, but I would have to either listen to the score or watch the movie to remember them precisely.

Unrelated, I found it a shame that several minutes of the castle raid sequence (before the album track plays) were nowhere on the album.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 00:36:46
Yeah, I agree Mike. There's a few too many cues just tracked in from the first one...not nearly as bad as On Stranger Tides or The Dark Knight Rises, though. And the new material is good, especially some of the action music.

Good point about the first half of the castle raid sequence. Can't believe that was missing from the album compared with some of the tracked stuff they did put on. Reepicheep's little muted trumpet theme is brilliant! Ultimately I think both the complete score and the album are lacking, and the best thing is to kinda build your own album out of the best bits from the complete. ;)


MacArthur2013-10-02 00:38:39
Oh yeah Caspian Is a great score.


Mike2013-10-02 16:24:29
Edmund, are you judging TDKR off the album? Because the album is most of the reused music in the movie (sadly; awful presentation of the score). Within the film there is a lot of new material, and I'd say the reused stuff is the minority of the score.


MacArthur2013-10-02 17:41:29
I love the Dark Knight Rises Score. And I don't think it repeated music too much......Now POTC4 did.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 17:46:12
A lot of the action cues like "Batman Chased" seem like they're cobbled together from the action music in BB and TDK. But mostly my issue is with the finale ("Rise" on album) which is basically a weaker rehash of "A Dark Knight". But I've also heard the complete score and it still strikes me as though there's too much tracking in. Sure there's some new material, and it's better than On Stranger Tides (to be fair, everything's better than On Stranger Tides), but it's still a disappointment I think. The vast majority of the new material is in the suites Zimmer wrote and a lot of that stuff didn't even make the film, which makes me wonder how much Nolan is to blame as well.


Mike2013-10-02 18:01:16
I would suggest giving it another listen. The only really notable rehashes are, as you said, "Batman Chased" and "Rise". There's also "Remember Where You Parked It?" and "On Thin Ice - Batman Returns", which are rearrangements of old stuff. But if you look at the cue sheet, listen closely to the score, or just watch the movie, a good 75% of the stuff is new. Still, I think Begins was the strongest of those scores from a purely enjoyable standpoint. TDK felt very polished, but the Joker music and a lot of the other "noise" tracks made it a weak listen sometimes.

It is a shame, though, especially in the case of TDKR's "Rise", that they just regurgitated TDK's finale in weaker form. They should have used the final few minutes of the Wayne Manor suite.


Mike2013-10-02 18:04:05
EDIT: There's also "For Old Times' Sake", "Handing Over the Reactor", and "Chasing the Convoy East". As for Nolan being to blame, I'm sure that's part of it. He was initially going to temp TDK for the most part, but Hans and James insisting on writing at least SOME new themes.


MacArthur2013-10-02 18:04:46
Was there new Batman stuff in the Wayne Manor Suite.

and I thought that On thin Ice was a nice new Arrangement. It was really refreshing to me.


Mike2013-10-02 18:06:39
Give the Wayne Manor suite a listen when you have 20 min to spare, MacArthur. Many new themes in there. And btw, I'm not referring to the album track "On Thin Ice", which is indeed new. I'm referring to the cue from the complete score when they light up the Bat-signal and Batman appears out of the shadows.


MacArthur2013-10-02 18:11:37
Ok.....Haha, Thanks I'll do that.


Mike2013-10-02 18:14:54
And just for the record....beginning at 6:58 in that suite is awesome. The arrangement of it in the movie was less exciting.

MacArthur reply Replies: 16 || 2013-09-24 17:08:35
One quick thing why didn't Harry Gregson-Williams do the score for the 3rd Narnia?


Mike2013-09-24 17:33:21
I believe it had to do with the director of the third one usually collaborating with David Arnold.


MacArthur2013-09-24 18:59:30
Odd.....Cause Gregson-Williams did it better


MacArthur2013-09-24 19:01:00
Mike you catholic or something


Alex2013-09-24 21:34:33
I disagree. I thought David Arnold's score was far, far superior. To each his own...


Edmund Meinerts2013-09-24 22:17:01
Yeah, Michael Apted directed Dawn Treader and he had previously done, among other things, The World is Not Enough with Arnold. I think Arnold did a fine job but Harry's scores were among the first I ever heard so I ultimately prefer them by a hair (especially Prince Caspian here).


Mike2013-09-24 22:52:47
I am Catholic, yes, but that relates to this how?


Mike2013-09-24 22:55:59
And yes, I agree, HGW did it better.


MacArthur2013-09-25 02:05:58
Sorry Mike I saw you say Praise Jesus. So I was Just wondering. lol.


Bioscope2013-09-25 05:21:31
I am not Catholic, and I praise Jesus everyday.


MacArthur2013-09-25 06:34:14
No that's good don't take offense to it please. I wasn't meaning it in a bad way. I'm Actually a Christian myself so I also praise Jesus every day. I was Actually named after the Narnia books.

Just saw the movie, and as usual there are once again a lot of good stuffs from the movie missing. Gotten ready for my ranting? ;D

*******!! SPOILERS ALERT !!********

* The opening credits and first half of the Prince Caspian Flees sequence

* Brawl at the Station sequence, arrival to Narnia (if I remember correctly, it's totally unreleased)

* Caspian's flight through the forest with Ninambrik (?) and the badger and saving the latter from some Telmarines (great percussion)

* The whole portion of the Pevensies' travel through Narnia after Lucy is saved from a wild bear

* Caspian rallies his troops in the cave (?) and tells them he's the rightful heir

* Lucy's dream sequence (a very beautiful, long piano/woodwind driven piece, I cannot understand why they left it out. Two thumbs up to HGW on this one!! :-)

* Pevensies' first encounter with Caspian and Peter and the latter's subsequent duel (as far as I remember this was a great piece)

* The Army salutes Caspian and the Pevensies' as they arrive at Aslan's How; this featured a GREAT reprise of the theme from the first movie and reduced me nearly to tears when I saw it was unreleased.

* The full first half of the Raid On The Castle sequence (when Peter, Caspian and others actually infiltrate the Castle and take down the Telmarine guards)

* Repicheep's muted trumpet theme (this really pissed me off that they didn't release it!!)

* A part of the second half of the Raid On The Castle sequence when Peter escapes on a Griffin from Miraz's castle

* Miraz Arrives - the Telmarine army arrives at Aslan's How before the Duel parlay scene. This is a faster, percussion-driven version of "Miraz Crowned"

* Parts of "Battle At Aslan's How" and the second half of "Door In The Air" seem to be missing, although I'm not sure.

*******!! SPOILERS END !!**********

There must be more, surely too, but these are the ones that were stuck in my head after seeing the movie. So let's keep our hopes up for a bootleg! ;-)
